January 24, 2012: 85yo Moose Mashing Heroine

Attachment 36940


Wife stops moose stomping with shovel

They build them tough in Alaska. This story from the Anchorage Daily News

Quote:
An agitated moose ran down and stomped a well-known Bush pilot from Willow, but he was saved when his wife grabbed a shovel from their pickup truck and whacked the big animal until it backed off.

George Murphy, 82, and his wife, Dorothea Taylor, 85, told the story of their recent moose encounter Sunday afternoon from Murphy's hospital room in Anchorage, where he is recovering from gashes to his head and left leg as well as seven broken ribs.
There's an even better picture of Dorothea if you follow the link.

I wanna be them when I grow up.

She snagged herself a toyboy, of course she grew up awesome.



wolf  Tuesday Jan 24 12:20 PM

"Most recent moose encounter" implies that she has previous experience at this.

She got a great infectious smile that old ladies light up a room with.




ZenGum  Wednesday Jan 25 05:52 AM

Note to my brain: that title was not 85yo Moose Washing Machine.

Because that would be silly.

Ma'am, you're awesome.

She looks like the old lady in the diner in the movie "Legion" just before she rips the throat out of someone and then climbs the wall to the ceiling. :-)

My ex hit a moose with his car once in MA. His car was crush and he had a neck broken in several places. The moose climbed off the car and ran away.

MA? Oh, Moose-achusetts.
